This is an absolutely gorgeous exquisitely carved huge very heavy paperweight from West Germany (before the re-unification). I have never seen another one of these either in Germany or here in the U. S. I purchased this in Germany in the late 1970s when I was absolutely smitten with the workmanship. It is a multi-faceted piece that is in the Ruby crystal. It has its original tag on it, and is in its original box. This is a piece that demands attention. It is stunning. The scene of an impressive building (I don't know which building it is) has such beautiful detail including the leaves on the trees. The detail on the eagle is amazing as well. It was hard getting photographs of the beautiful carved surfaces because of the reverse side also catching light so beautifully.
Size: Diameter 4 1/4". It stands 4 1/2' tall.
Country of Origin: West Germany (before the re-unification).
Manufacturer: Royal Germania.
Marks: On one facet "1971 Royale 99." The inside of the box "Royal Germania Crystal Limited Edition"
Original Tag: "Mouth Blown Hand Cut Made in W- Germany Lead Crystal"
Condition: High Very Good for the Piece itself and Very Good for the box.
